Ireland has introduced a 3% target for annual domestic greenhouse gas reductions and an annual “carbon budget” to monitor progress. The government is committed to introducing a carbon levy that would apply to sectors outside the EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS). By improving public transport services, the new transport policy released in February 2009 should help curb CO2 emissions. A Cabinet Committee on Climate Change and Energy Security was established, chaired by the Taoiseach (Prime Minister).
